My research has convinced me that I do not have neither the time nor the

the data were received in the same layout, but the layout is as varied as
are the sources. Since I am the only one that is using the data, a
spreadsheet serves me best as I am able to freely add, delete, and modify
the layout, format, calculations, etc. Something a for which a database has
never been designed.

Well, then you don't heve the time nor the resources to set up and maintain a database in spreadsheets. The latter scenario is the nightmare that never stops. A CSV file is an excerpt from a database and you can use any tool where your are free to modify layout, format, calculations etc. But then you save back a modified layout and format with additional calculations.

A database program lets you freely handle all data in any shape while maintaining the underlying data structures automatically for you.
